I totally get what you are saying but this is all under the assumption that Canon continues making their lenses, just not new ones and that they stop making new bodies. And even though you are right that there are plenty of other companies with their own lenses, it is just the idea that all those Canon users of EF are left on the table. Surely a lost profit. Isnt that why this thread was started?

Canon supports the EF lens on the RF mount. The adapter isn't even that expensive.

The people who *might* be left on the table are the people with EF lenses that need a DSLR. I'm sure that's a reasonably sized market, but experience would suggest it is too small a market to justify making a DSLR from pretty much scratch.

If it was worth anyone's while to build a new DSLR around the EF mount, they would have done so years ago. Now with Canon shifting to RF and M, it would not be a good investment in the least.
